about

A sack race between the head and the heart. The verses tell a story of using Christianity to nurse an emotional trauma, while the choruses unveil your true obsession - a long-distance relationship. There is a push-and-pull between scattered and colloquial verses and explicit choruses. “If you’ve got a hole inside, you better fill it up with Jesus Christ” is a real advice I once received.

lyrics

In the year 2010 of our Lord, I was walking past a steeple
Heard a pastor calling out to me, saying he needed empty people

“If you’ve got a hole inside, you better fill it up with Jesus Christ”
I said “great, I’ll take two of those”, he said “very funny,
would you like that with some fries?”

Baby you’re a big bright star
but I all I wanna do is talk to you
Babe I know I’ve got cognitive dissonance
but don’t you think we could handle the distance?

In the year 2010 of our Lord, I was plotting my escape
Slowly slipping from the dance to the bathroom I switzerlanded my way

Someone grinded and someone shouted “we all look better from our other side”
I said “great, I’ll take two of those” but no one heard my joke
and it’s alright, it’s alright

Baby you’re a big bright star
but I all I wanna do is talk to you
Babe I know I’ve got cognitive dissonance (I know, I know)
but don’t you think we could handle the distance?

Baby you’re a big bright star
and I all I wanna do is talk to you
Babe I know I’ve got cognitive dissonance
but don’t you think we could handle the distance?

Babe I know I’ve got cognitive dissonance
but don’t you think we could handle the distance?
